My son absolutely loves the ice cream at Cold Stone Creamery in Oak Lawn. He likes it much better than Baskin Robbins and so do I. Not only does it have more relaxing interior to eat your ice cream in, but the atmosphere is welcoming and so are the employees.
After careful deliberation of which ice cream scoops he will try this time and believe me there are many to choose from, my son will then take on the "difficult" task of toppings. From nuts to whipped cream and everything in between it is a battle to get as many in as possible for him. There has to be M&M's of course and don't forget the Oreo chunks.
All this aside, the best part for him and for my husband and I is at the very beginning where the employees will offer us a small taste of any ice cream we choose. We may have a difficult time getting our son to eat new foods, but Cold Stone Creamery makes it easy when it come to new ice cream flavors.
They have many original creations to choose from or you can create your own. They also offer gallons to take home as well as ice cream cakes, shakes, smoothies and more.
You can also go to their website to sign-up for free ice cream on your birthday or just to find a location near you:
